“After they transferred her money to the other bank account she provided, i was with her when the branch manager called her to ask if she’s seen the alert. Branch manager now ended call with “I hope we get to see you soon again”. Na so.”

“Yes it’s your right to close your account but let me ask this if we all close our account with the bank and the bank can’t cope with the financial impact and decided to sack the staffs. Have we won the Fight?. Just asking.” @MobolajiDadson
